  1. A great silhouette, Grace, it works really, really well – amazing zoom you have on your phone! My father lived in New York for around 10 years many moons ago. I’ve visited once and can’t wait to go back 😀

    1. Thank you, Ellie. I took a series of silhouette shots a couple of years ago while we were on a boat tour. When I saw that yesterday was the anniversary of the statue’s arrival I thought it would make a good subject for the blog. I’m glad you like it! You should return for a visit, it is really a vibrant city to visit. xx

  2. A really powerful silhouette. The jet trail that cuts across in the background almost seems to underline the powerful stance.
